A year after the first robot­ic-assist­ed surgery at Ivin­son, the da Vin­ci Xi sur­gi­cal robot con­tin­ues to improve women’s health in our community.

On Nov. 13, the Women’s Health Clin­ic at Ivin­son Med­ical Group is host­ing a free lec­ture on gyne­co­log­ic con­di­tions, poten­tial com­pli­ca­tions and when to vis­it a doc­tor. A com­ple­men­tary din­ner will be pro­vid­ed to all who attend.

The Women’s Health Clin­ic works to pro­vide life­long care and sup­port for women in our com­mu­ni­ty. Drs. Kim West­brook and Derek Ewell will dis­cuss the lat­est treat­ment options offered includ­ing min­i­mal­ly inva­sive robot­ic assist­ed surgery with our state-of-the-art da Vin­ci Xi robot.

This sur­gi­cal sys­tem allows sur­geons to per­form com­plex pro­ce­dures with just a few, small inci­sions. Dur­ing surgery, the sur­geon oper­ates from a con­sole table a few feet away from the patient. Com­put­er tech­nol­o­gy allows the robot­ic instru­ments to mim­ic the move­ments of the sur­geon, which are stead­ier than the human hand and can bend and twist far more than the wrist.

The instru­ments have a range of motion of 720 degrees, which is obvi­ous­ly more than the human hand. With tremor fil­tra­tion, this allows the instru­ments to remain very steady and accu­rate,” says Jamie Ami­carel­la, da Vin­ci Clin­i­cal Sales Rep for Ivinson.

This free lec­ture will begin at 6:00 PM in Ivinson’s East Patient Entrance. Atten­dees are encour­aged to arrive ear­ly to see the da Vin­ci Xi sur­gi­cal robot in person.
